Windows IoT on Galileo – Accessing Azure storage services

Now Galileo is capable of accessing azure storage services after several tries and tweaks. As you know Windows developer Program for IoT released the Casablanca C++ REST SDK for accessing cloud services from Galileo but this is not sufficient to access azure services and we need to port or develop another layer on top of it to access specific Azure services. I searched and fortunately found a C++ library that can specifically made to access Azure storage services and again that is using the Casablanca C++ REST SDK. Wow!!!. But this happiness was not withstood for long time after building it and running it simply on Galileo. Let’s get hands dirty!!!


  • Supported for both Intel Galileo Gen1 and Gen2.
  • Latest OS update released on 21-Nov-2014 (common .wim for Gen1 and Gen2) for    lightning (improved performance on I2C, SPI, and UART etc..) 
  • Visual studio 2013 with Windows IoT SDK (Visit: for more details) and Microsoft IoT C++ SDK and its dependent NuGet Package is required.
  • NuGet package for C++ REST SDK (Casablanca) Version ≥ 2.0.1 (tested with version    2.0.1 and 2.2.0)
  • Source code for C++ REST SDK. Go through the instructions given in the below link.
